    I guess it's ok. That is, if you have a liking for fine firearms.....

    Springfield 1911's are excellent.

    I hope you can find one. Those are awesome. The two-tone look is really hot looking and Springfields function flawlessly in my experiences.

    I think its a fine choice. I personally prefer Colts but it is a personal choice based on looks and historical affiliation, not on quality or performance. My buddy has a Springfield Mil Spec and it shoots great.

    I'll second the "hope you can find one" comment. Springfield 1911s are in short supply, and I've heard they are saying "months" to inquiries about when specific models may be available.

    Mine jammed just about every round.
    Might just be a bit of burring on the extractor.
    Need to go shoot it some more to find out.

    I've bought a number of SA 1911s since 1992. Never had a bad one.

    The Black Stainless Loaded is the best-looking 1911 out there for the price point. Compares in looks to the Kimber Eclipse (except no frontstrap checkering), which'll run you a couple hundred more bucks.
